Incognito in Saint Louis

Slowly unleashing the secrets of city life.

New Urban

A post over at Brick City jumpstarted my drive to post something about this topic because the residents of suburban St. Louis, are for, the most part the most racist idiots I think I have ever run into. Specifically, those people living in St. Charles. And before people dispute me on this shit; don't. I lived there for 18 years. Don't try to explain to me that you aren't racist, even though you only live by your kind, work with your kind, and have friends that are your kind.

Here are some of the examples to illustrate my point:

New Urban:
We're going to take all of the perks of the city and move them out to good old St. Charles. That's right; we're going to build coffee shops, and martini bars, and even a convention center. All the fun without the crime, minorities, or poor.

No public transit here:
St. Charles refuses to participate on Public Transit. Refuses. However, they have tried to get onto the board to make decisions; despite the fact that the county doesn't pay for Metro and doesn't want it in its area. The reason: fear. I have heard on more than one occasion, that people from East St. Louis would ride metro over to St. Charles and rob people. I swear to God I have. One person told me that they don't ride Metro because it is dangerous His proof: someone called him ugly on the train and they were obviously looking for a fight. People have also blaimed the Metrolink for the fights at the Galleria and an altercation at the Brentwood station. I have also heard this stuck up bitch co-worker of mine say that you would never catch her on a bus. I wanted to throw up.

I guess people couldn't have rode the busses that have been going through that area for years to commit crimes. Seriously. How is public transportation dangerous? Or is it that you will have to be AROUND people who you innately believe are dangerous. I think I know the answer.......

The bottom line: I defy someone to find violent crimes associated with metro.

Go West Young Man: Urban Sprawl. People moving further and further west to "safe" areas. Safe areas like Troy, MO; where one of the largest KKK organizations in Missouri is still active. Safe indeed.

I've heard several people say something about moving west to get away from the ni##ers. Followed by some ridiculous race filled rant that trails off because I'm walking away.

Apparently, crossing the bridge altogether is unsafe to them. According to at least one person I know of in O'Fallon, Maryland Heights is Ni**erville.

These people start sentences of racism by saying, "I'm not racist but............"
Does anybody understand how those four words wipe out any racist bullshit that follow them because I never have.

I could go on and on and on.

Here's my point: you wanna know why the city of St. Louis is dying? Teamwork.

Yeah, that's right: Teamwork! The city itself may have some problems; don't get me wrong. The operations within the city aren't perfect. However, looked at the inability for some people in this area to be able to work together as a team to get planning done. Listen to the casual hate in the voices of the westward residents and you'll find a major problem. Everybody knows it and no one wants to say it, but if the city were Dave Chappelle, it would say, "Oh Lord, this racism is killing me inside."
